Blink 182’s Tom DeLonge Has a Conspiracy Theory Website
What’s more ridiculous, Strange Times or the hope of a quality new Blink 182 record?
Blink 182 guitarist Tom DeLonge is really into conspiracy theories. Fans have debated his use of Free Mason imagery in videos and on his guitar. He’s made it known that he believes at least some of the 9/11 inside job theories. Now he’s involved in a website, Strange Times, that publishes and aggregates all kinds of conspiracy stories.
In addition to usual news categories like technology, politics, science and entertainment, Strange Times offers sections on UFOs and aliens, conspiracy, civil unrest, shadow government and “simply strange” (in contrast to the extremely mainstrem stories about flying discs and electromagnetic weapons).
You can learn all about different sightings by looking at the interactive map that users can add to. And not just UFOs, but paranormal activity, civil unrest, cryptids, crop circles, military items, chem trials and mutilations. The lead story, splashed across the top of the site in huge, HuffPo-style lettering is an aggregated piece about the Roswell landing.
For all its crazy-sounding headlines — like Alien Baby Stumps Experts — Strange Times is a pretty entertaining site to look through. Possibly more entertaining than “Neighborhoods,” the Blink 182 comeback album that drops September 27, will be.
Of course, DeLonge isn’t the only musician to start a non-music-related site. 50 Cent is in the process of launching This is 50 Comedy, which will start debuting regular content on Monday, August 8.
